CPB Contractors selected for RPA Hospital redevelopment works

CPB Contractors, a member of CIMIC Group, has been selected by the New South Wales Government to deliver the design, early works and delivery phases for the redevelopment of the Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital at Camperdown in Sydney.

Works include upgrades and the reconfiguration of various departments within RPA, including emergency, intensive care, acute inpatient, paediatric inpatient, medical imaging and women and babies departments, as well as operating theatres.

Juan Santamaria, executive chairman of CIMIC Group, said: “We are pleased to be selected to deliver the most significant redevelopment works in RPA Hospital’s 140-year history, supporting it to continue delivery of advanced health services for its local community and patients from across New South Wales, Australia and internationally.”

Jason Spears, managing director of CPB Contractors, noted the team’s previous successes, such as the award-winning redevelopment of Nepean Hospital Stage 1 and Campbelltown Hospital in Western Sydney. He affirmed their commitment to bringing knowledge, experience and a ‘hospital first’ approach to the RPA Hospital project.

“We look forward to working with the NSW Government to deliver this upgrade for the thousands of people who come through the RPA Hospital doors every year,” said Spears. “We are focused on putting the needs of health workers, patients and community first, as well as ensuring minimal disruption to the hospital operations, while providing local employment and traineeship opportunities, and seeking Indigenous and social procurement.”

The scope of work includes the construction of a new 15-storey acute hospital building adjoining the existing RPA Hospital, as well as vertical and horizontal expansions of the existing hospital structure. Additionally, CPB Contractors will deliver major refurbishments to existing spaces across the campus including the ambulance parking area, realignment of Lambie Dew Drive Road, diversion of existing inground services, and the design and construction of a temporary helicopter landing site.

CPB Contractors will work closely with Health Infrastructure NSW throughout the project’s execution. Construction is scheduled to commence in 2024, with completion expected in 2028.
